    Jed Lowrie Aug 12 5:40pm ET

    New York Mets infielder Jed Lowrie has had his career hit a full stop due to left knee discomfort that has limited him to eight plate appearances since signing with the Mets ahead of 2019. The next step in his rehab is for him to receive another round of injections in his knee in an attempt to get him working toward a return, although any kind of timetable on when he could return to the Majors is guesswork at this stage. When healthy, the Mets have a crowded infield; Lowrie, who signed a two-year, $20 million deal, would figure to fill in as a reserve at this stage, even should things break in his favor. He is a non-entity from a fantasy perspective, despite having been an All-Star as recently as 2018 with Oakland.

    Jose Quintana Aug 12 5:30pm ET

    Chicago Cubs left-handed pitcher Jose Quintana tossed three innings during a simulated game Tuesday and did not report back any issues with the left thumb that has kept him sidelined thus far in 2020. Manager David Ross noted that there was still no timeline for when Quintana would join the club, but it sounds as if his rehab is nearly complete. The Statcast metrics from last season back up the career-high 10.1 H/9 that Quintana yielded, although his FIP (3.80) was nearly a run lower than his ERA (4.69). With how long it has taken the veteran southpaw to get back on the hill at the big league level, owners may want to remain cautious when it comes to adding him in season-long formats.

    Rich Hill Aug 12 5:20pm ET

    Minnesota Twins left-handed pitcher Rich Hill (shoulder) and right-hander Homer Bailey (biceps tendinitis) are continuing to make progress in their attempts at rejoining the starting rotation. Hill threw a bullpen session Tuesday and will face live hitting when the team returns to Minnesota after its current road trip; Bailey is slightly behind Hill, only now ramping up to playing catch. Hills lone start of the season resulted in five scoreless innings, while Bailey allowed two runs in his five frames. Without both men in the rotation, Devin Smeltzer appears to have held down a spot for the time being while openers and bullpen games have also been utilized. Neither Hill nor Bailey appear particularly close to game action, so owners can leave them on the waiver wire or their IL spots for the time being.

    Jose Iglesias Aug 12 5:20pm ET

    Baltimore Orioles shortstop Jose Iglesias is back among the starting nine for Wednesdays contest against the Phillies and right-hander Zach Eflin. Iglesias entered late in Tuesdays game as he continues to battle a sore left quad which manager Brandon Hyde has termed a day-to-day ailment moving forward. A staple in the No. 3 spot of the Orioles order, Iglesias .401 xBA entering play Wednesday ranks him second in the Majors. While he is unlucky to provide much in the way of power metrics, he has made his case for season-long consideration with 15 hits in 38 at-bats. He is as safe of a cash play at SS in DFS as is available on the market.

    Chris Owings Aug 12 5:13pm ET

    Colorado Rockies 2B Chris Owings (hamstring) left the game Wednesday, Aug. 12, due to hamstring tightness.

    Rich Hill Aug 12 5:13pm ET

    Minnesota Twins SP Rich Hill (shoulder) threw a bullpen Wednesday, Aug. 12, and will next face live hitters.

    Aroldis Chapman Aug 12 5:10pm ET

    New York Yankees closer Aroldis Chapman is set to face live hitters either Thursday or Friday, his last warmup session before being activated to the Major League roster. Chapman has yet to debut in 2020 after a positive COVID-19 test earlier in the summer. Zack Britton has primarily served as the clubs closer in Chapmans stead, and his fantasy value will presumably dip when the fireballer returns to the bullpen. As soon as Chapman is activated, he becomes a must-own in every season-long format, while Britton figures to retain value in deeper leagues or roto formats with holds and his 0.75 WHIP making the case for him.

    Alex Colome Aug 12 5:10pm ET

    Chicago White Sox closer Alex Colome picked up his fifth save of the season on Wednesday versus the Detroit Tigers. Colome threw a perfect ninth inning for the save and has yet to allow a run in eight games. Colome is entrenched in the closers role with the White Sox and should be owned in all formats.

    Justin Verlander Aug 12 5:03pm ET

    Houston Astros SP Justin Verlander (forearm) hopes to begin throwing within the next week in an attempt to return this season, according to a source Wednesday, Aug. 12.

    Justin Verlander Aug 12 5:00pm ET

    Houston Astros right-handed pitcher Justin Verlander has disputed that he will be shut down for the remainder of the 2020 season due to a right forearm injury that has kept him out since Opening Day. The next step in that process is for Verlander to begin throwing as soon as next week, per Brian McTaggart of Houstons pitching staff has been pancaked by injuries during the first third of the year and getting Verlander back in any capacity would be a major boon. Theres no guarantee that the future Hall of Famer will be able to pitch again this season, but his attempt is certainly a step in the right direction. In leagues where he has already been dropped onto the waiver wire, holding him in an IL spot until the next update may be a precinct maneuver.

    Andrew Kittredge Aug 12 4:53pm ET

    Updating a previous story, Tampa Bay Rays P Andrew Kittredge (elbow) was transferred to the 60-day injured list Wednesday, Aug. 12.

    Trevor Cahill Aug 12 4:53pm ET

    San Francisco Giants P Trevor Cahill was recalled from the team's alternate training site Wednesday, Aug. 12.

    Will Harris Aug 12 4:50pm ET

    Washington Nationals right-handed pitcher Will Harris (groin) is progressing toward being activated from the injured list for the clubs contest Thursday against the Mets. Manager Davey Martinez confirmed before Wednesdays game so long as Harris was feeling strong Thursday, he would join the teams bullpen. Inked to a $24 million deal during the off-season to secure the back end of the clubs relief corps, Harris will presumably take on a considerable role from the onset. While Daniel Hudson figures to remain the teams closer for the time being, Harris will have ample hold chances and could potentially vulture a save or two, making him a deep season-long asset.

    Tim Anderson Aug 12 4:50pm ET

    Chicago White Sox shortstop Tim Anderson went 4-for-5 with three runs scored and a RBI on Wednesday versus the Detroit Tigers. Anderson returned from a groin strain on Tuesday and hasnt missed a beat with the bat. The shortstop fell a double short of the cycle and is now hitting .385 on the season. Anderson remains a strong option in all formats.
